Copper colored with a big white-ish head.
Fruity aroma from the hops, with some sugary notes.
Taste is mostly caramel, blended with hops, and some yeast. Peppery and dry finish. HenrikSoegaard (14166) - Randers, DENMARK - FEB 17, 2012

On tap @ Amundsen Bryggeri og Spiseri, Oslo. Deep coppery amber body, small white head. Nose is strawberry, kiwi, apricot, pineapple (first time in a beer!), dried apples and honey melon. Damn, this is the fruitiest beer I’ve ever smelled; the esters are all over the place and I feel like I’m hovering my nose above a large platter of assorted fruits. Very, very nice. Taste is almost as fruity; apricot, strawberry, kiwi, hints of grass, hay and traces of dusty hops. This is a beer that actually pulls off tasting almost as fruity as the aroma, which is very rare and a huge plus in my book. Moreover, it it well balanced, not too sweet and utterly drinkable. The best surprise from Amundsen yet, and props to the Ægir crew who undoubtedly had more than one finger in the process. Perhaps the best amber I’ve had so far. gunnar (9085) - Sandnes, NORWAY - OCT 21, 2011
On tap at Amundsen. Pours deep amber with a big white head. Aroma of red fruity hops. Taste of nutty malts with a fair amount of fruity hops towards the end. Lingering bitter aftertaste, with a nice tail of pepper mint.

500 ml draught at Amundsen. Hazy dark copper
colour with red hues. Medium-sized light beige head that clings to the
glass. Fruity and piney aromas. Caramel malts with roasted
notes. Dry powdery texture. Rather fruity malt
flavours. Butterscotch. A little unbalanced. Feels a little
unfinished. Palme (4807) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 16, 2011
Tap @ Amundsen, Oslo. This one pours a clear light copper-brown body with a nice dense off-white head. The aroma is kinda caramel-sweet, some candy, light fruity and hints of that yeasty-fruity profile I often find in Amundsens beers. Soft to average carbonation, medium-bodied and it has a light oily to sticky mouthfeel. Flavors have also a light sweet fudgy-caramel hint, some fruits in here absolutely and also some nice hops in the finish. Ends kinda spicy and light dry. Not bad at all.

From tap @ Grünerløkka Mat & Mikroølfestival. Hazy deep reddish amber. Firm off-white head. Sweet-scented, peppery caramel on the nose. Taste is sharp bready and caramelly malts. Well prononced earthy bitterness. Well-bodied concidering the abv. Herbal-bitter endnotes. More than decent stuff. Rune (12724) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 3, 2011
Two tasters on tap at Amundsen Bryggeri & Spiseri. Clear and deep amber body colour. Fading head, fragile lacing. Aroma of resinous hops. Partially tart oranges in flavour offset by sweet malts. Dry and dark bitter ending. Medium bodied. Works quite well (Oslo, 26.09.2011). KnutAlbert (6754) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 8, 2011
On tap, Grünerløkka Brygghus ølfestival. Lots of sweet malt, caramel. Pronounced herbal bitterness. A bit more in-your-face than the Ægir beers, and far more interesting than the usual Amundsen beers.
